Pictured here are the 11" x 14" #4 US lobby card and the 27" x 41" US one-sheet for the 1957 Jean Delannoy film The Hunchback of Notre Dame based on the novel by Victor Hugo, screenplay by Jean Aurenche and Jacques Prevert and starring Anthony Quinn as Quasimodo, the hunchback. Plot summary: This film tells a slightly sanitized version of Hugo's 1830 story about the unlikely 15th-Century love between the tortured hunchback Quasimodo and the beautiful Gypsy street dancer Esmerelda [Gina Lollobrigida], who wins Quasimodo's heart by giving him water while he is being publicly flogged. For this performance Lollobrigida won the Bambi award for best actress.

Cast and crew: Jean Delannoy, Victor Hugo, Gina Lollobrigida, Anthony Quinn, Jean Danet, Alain Cuny, Robert Hirsch, Danielle Dumont, Philippe Clay, Maurice Sarfati, Jean Tissier, Valentine Tessier, Jacques Hilling, Jacques Dufilho, Roger Blin, Marianne Oswald, Roland Bailly
